How to get the Violet Spellwing mount (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Violet Spellwing is obtained from the quest "Blood of a Titan". This quest is in turn started from an item that drops when you kill Argus (The final boss of Antorus) on heroic or higher difficulty. Every member of the raid will be able to loot the item that begins the quest unless they have completed that quest already.



This means that in order to get the Violet Spellwing, you need to kill Argus on heroic difficulty.

The item that begins the quest will be removed from the loot table at Battle for Azeroth launch! If you missed the opperturnity to get then, then there's no way to get it.

How to get Wakening Essences as fast and easy as possible (World of Warcraft: Legion)

When Antorus the Burning Throne raid opened, the Wakening Essences became available for players to collect. These items act as a currency, and by getting 50 of them, you can upgrade 1 Legendary item to ilvl 1000! You are able to earn up to 175 Essences per week, so you can pretty easily upgrade 3 Legendary items per week.

In order to get the Wakening Essences, you need to do the following actions:

- Mythic+ Dungeons. you get 20 Wakening Essences from the Weekly Chest. The difficulty of the Mythic+ does not matter.

- Antorus bosses. Any boss in the Antorus raid will drop 3 to 6 Essences per boss! It does not matter if you kill the boss on LFR, normal, heroic or Mythic! Any kill give you the same amount, but you will only get Essences on the first kill on any difficulty each week.

- Emissary caches. Each Emissary cache will contain between 5 and 10 Wakening Essences. You should definitely do these every day if you want to upgrade your Legendary items!

- Daily Legion Heroic. You get 5 Wakening Essences when you complete the first Legion Heroic dungeon of the day. This totals up to 35 each week if you are able to do it every day.

- Weekly PvP Quests. If you gain 1,500 honor in either 2s, 3s or rated battleground, you get 7 Wakening Essences. This means that you get 21 additional Wakening Essences by PvPing if you do all 3.

There is no other way to obtain Wakening Essences at the moment, so most players will get just over 100 each week by playing PvE. The fastest way to grind them would be to do all the actions above daily and weekly, but casual players should stick to running Antorus on LFR difficulty while doing Emissary Quests and daily Legion Heroic dungeons.

The best strategy for farming Sightless Eyes as easy and fast as possible (World of Warcraft: Legion)

By farming a total of 20,000 Sightless Eyes, you get a permanent Ratstallion mount, so this is a grind many players are currently doing. It does not take all that long to farm 20,000 Sightless Eyes, but be prepared to spend a few hours down in the sewers.

Anyway, in order to farm the Sightless Eyes as quick as possible, you want to join a premade group using the group finder tool. Find a group where the PvP is turned off is the sewers, and kill as many rares as you manage with your group. Once someone turn on PvP again, leave the group and join a new premade farming group to farm more rares. By doing this you will have very little downtime in the farming process, and you should be able to farm the 20,000 Sightless Eyes very fast compared to grinding them out on your own.

If you are doing pet battles, then you could also go into the sewers and do this. Each battle win awards you with 75 Sightless Eyes, so this is a nice alternative strategy. It might be a bit slower, but it is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Good luck!

How to solo Sinestra in The Bastion of Twilight (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Sinestra is the Heroic-only boss in The Bastion of Twilight, and can be fought after having killed Cho'gall. She can be a bit tricky to solo, but it should be very easy once you know how to deal with her.

During the first phase, you simply just need to DPS her down. This should be easy enough. Once she enters phase 2, she will spawn a lot of adds, and these needs to be kept alive. It's not a problem if you kill a few of them, but don't aim to kill them all. During this phase you should keep damaging Sinestra, but you will damage her mana instead of health.

Once her mana is very low, the two eggs at either sides of her will loose their shield, and these needs to be nuked down before she regenerates her mana. This should be very easy at level 110. However, some classes will have trouble killing both eggs, and if this is the case, then simply repeat phase 2, and kill the other egg when her mana is reaching zero.

During the final phase, she just needs to be nuked down again, so just attack her, and she will die once her health is gone.

How to get the Beginner's Luck achievement (Path of Exile)

The achievement "Beginner's Luck" is unlocked by getting a unique item drop on the Twilight Strands, also known as the very first area in the game. The problem that makes this achievement difficult is that once you leave this area, you cannot ever get back to it, so you need to get this achievement without ever going to another area on that character.

This prevents you from going back and farming the area on a high level character, but you must instead do it on a fresh character. If you really want to farm it, the you should create 4 different level 1 characters. Log into the first one and rush to Hillock. Kill him and hope a Unique drops. When it does not, log out and try again on the next character.

It tends to take a long time to get it to drop, and most people have 4 different characters that reach level 4 by repeatedly killing Hillock. Estimates to get the achievement is between 1 and 4 hours of intense farming, but you might get lucky and get it a lot quicker.

Getting Beginner's Luck during modified races

During certain races, such as Mayhem, you can get it a whole lot easier. The Twilight Strand zone will not spawn the most difficult modifiers, but it can spawn ghosts. What you should do it to get Hillock to low health and then kite him to get haunted by five different ghosts. This will make him incredibly difficult, but you should be able to get him down with a few deaths.

Farming Hillock with 5 ghosts will make him drop a Unique item a whole lot faster, and most people will get a unique item within 2-5 kills! This makes the achievement unlockable in under 30 minutes, compared to the regular hours of farming.

How to powerlevel / boost new players to level 70 fast (Diablo 3)

If you are arriving into a new season a few days late, then you might be able to catch up a lot easier by getting a powerlevel / boost in order to reach level 70 very fast. A geared level 70 player can typically get a full party to level 70 in under an hour, and there are actually a lot of players who are willing to boost others!

If you are looking for a boost, then open the Communities page and look for a powerlevel/boost Community. There are many of them, and often there are hundreds of boosts online. Just ask nicely, and someone will usually boost you very soon.

The booster should simply open a new game on Torment 6. This is the highest Torment level a new player can use. He should then rush trough normal rifts, and 4 or 5 tend to be enough to get the new player up to level 70!

The person who receives the boost should simply be waiting at the entrance, and you will get all the XP. If the booster changes floors, use his portal to get to his current floor, or else you will not get any experience.

Remember to give a big thanks to the booster once you hit level 70!
